Test nonlethal weapons on U.S. citizens, official says


WASHINGTON - Nonlethal weapons such as high-power microwave devices should be used on American citizens in crowd-control situations before they are used on the battlefield, the Air Force secretary said Tuesday.



Domestic use would make it easier to avoid questions in the international community over any possible safety concerns, said Air Force Secretary Michael Wynne.


People, the police state is here! They would rather test weapons on their own citizens before using them against our enemies!


"(Because) if I hit somebody with a nonlethal weapon and they claim that it injured them in a way that was not intended, I think that I would be vilified in the world press."


Of course the Government doesn't give two about what their own people think. People are getting killed all the time by police who use tazers and they get off scott free, no questions asked.
